Abuja - President- elect, Muhammadu Buhari has again commended President Goodluck Jonathan for conceding defeat in the March 28 presidential election.

He said President Jonathan’s decision is a landmark in Nigeria's political history.

Buhari, in his first exclusive interview with a Nigerian media organisation since he won the election, said President Jonathan’s action has helped stabilized the politics of the country.

He said Nigerians should expect change from June 1 as his administration and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) will live up to its manifesto commitment, which he said was carefully put together.

He maintained that his administration will parade technocrats and people of integrity, noting that people of questionable characters will not be allowed in APC cabinet.
